Stanislaus County supervisors have unanimously approved an indoor cannabis operation west of Keyes in the home of Ragtime player pianos.
The county Planning Commission recommended approval of a Conditional Use Permit (CUP) and a five-year developer agreement on June 6 for Golden Purpose to operate the cannabis business in an industrial park west of Highway 99 at 4218 Jessup Road just north of Keyes Road.
On July 30 the Board of Supervisors voted 5-0 to approve it.
The applicant proposes to establish a commercial cannabis indoor cultivation, processing and distribution operation within two existing warehouses totaling 7,400 square feet and a proposed 12,000-square-foot building to be developed on the southeastern portion of the site to allow for an additional 2,600 square feet of cultivation canopy space. The project also proposes fencing of the site, restrooms for employees, an office, storage area, and the keeping of mother and nursery plants to feed the cultivation activities. At full buildout, the business is expected to employ 13 employees.
The building closest to Jessup Road will not be used for cultivation until 2020.
